I like the relationship between these brothers, specially the way how the eldest brother try to be the father and mother to both kids. But the story didn't click man. This feels more simple than what i was expecting.

I LIIIIIIIIIIIIIKED IT VERY MUCH. Well, it's because I imagine how Nakamura Yuuichi's going to be such a cool brother <3

And since it's also like Gintama <3 I can feel Gintoki's soul within Tenka <3

Or maybe I'm just really fond of Sugita Tomokazu & Nakamura Yuuichi? <3 Hahaha

I haven't read the source material but I felt that they crammed three chapters or so in one episode? I sense potential in it and I'm definitely going to read this manga once its anime is over.

I am just going to shorten their names to Sora, Tenka (except him), and Chuu.
Tenka dressed as a woman and carrying the baby Sora xD
Tenka's reaction to that scroll hidden in the desk! How Botan said Tenka's role too...
The fight was not bad, Sora at the end needing help from Tenka.

That flashback Sora got though! Seems like a past that only Tenka remembers most about.

I have this manga but only read some chapter XD.
Eh ? this is going to be 12 episode ? I thought this is going to be 24 episode because this manga finished in 6th volume.

Actually i had listen the drama cd before this anime airing. Agree but Tenka's hair look weird in anime than in manga. And such a nice BGM too.

Yeah I recognised both voices too. :)
I'm glad I have watched enough to do so.
The anime looks good and the plot interesting enough.
The little brother is definitly annoying

That was great. I expected this show to be good and it delivered. Very interesting setting and main characters. I was hooked from start to finish. Unlike others, I think the seiyuu do match the characters.

Seems like this show might be pretty dark based on the flashback and scene after the ED.


watch nodame cantabile

recommend me anything!

I have mixed feelings for this show. I'll give it three eps before deciding to drop this or not.

It dragged a bit, but I did like the manga quite a lot. So, I'll continue watching. [the 12 episode limit is worrisome though, I mean the manga finished so why not do the whole thing?]

Yawn. Art is definitely nice and lots of bishies to drool but like some historical shoujo anime (e.g. Hakuouki), it's quite boring. It's lacking in the execution, man. Action scenes aren't animated fully.

It's going to take me a bit to get used to the youngest brother's voice. Something about it just doesn't fit. However, I found myself really liking Tenka, the eldest brother. Sora was okay, kinda meh, but maybe he'll become more interesting. All in all, I'll jus keep watching and see if I decide to drop it or not.

6/10 for this episode.
Might drop it.
Isayama Hajime should be awarded The Manga with The Highest Inconsistencies of Characters' Appearances.
He keeps performing multiple plastic surgeries on those Shingeki No Kyojin characters in a SINGLE chapter.
Yes, I've read up to the latest chapter of Shingeki No Kyojin manga.
Forced myself to read through the kidsketching chapters after the anime's ended. At least from now on, I only have to go through the hell once a month.
Patiently awaiting SNK TV/movie/OVA anime-sequel.
The 2015 SNK live-action movie would probably suck.

I guess the anime isn't executing the story well, seeing how the manga is rated quite highly compared to this episode so far? :o I personally liked this episode a lot! Though it's true not much excitement happened. I'll expect the next episode or so to really kick things off. Either way I will read the manga eventually.

I really like Tenka, though his hair annoyed me so much at first lol. I definitely want to see more action scenes of him. Not really feeling the other two brothers though.

Curious about Shirasu, aka the self-proclaimed "family freeloader" :P

Damn, the animation and sound are amazing. Especially the 2nd son, he is the MC is Akame ga Kill, Highschool DxD, Black Bullet, Ao Haru Ride, SnK.


Well, no. Yuki Kaji isn't voicing anyone in Akame ga Kill.

My thoughts - I expected it to be a little better. Art is not as beautiful as in manga, especially Soramaru and Tenka look a bit weird... and yes, Yonaga Tsubasa's voice doesn't exactly fit Chuutarou.

The middle brother was way to whiny and the action and comedy wasn't very good.

I see no reason to continue watching.

So far everything about this adaptation screams "average" to me. Not bad, not great.
I don't have any major complaints except that the OST was really unfitting/awkwardly placed during some scenes (opening scene of the brothers capturing a prisoner, and some of the action scenes.). Like they were trying a bit too hard to be dramatic but it just came off as rather lackluster.
Kaji Yuki fits Soramaru pretty well, though I wonder how long it'll take for me to get tired of him in these kinds of roles. I like how they presented scenes from the prison after the ED.

well it is anime ^^ 90% of the adaptations of manga are "rushed" but u need to remember that u ownly have 20min/ep soo u kinda need to rush thing to get some content in it :)[/quote]

While I completely understand what your saying, I just really hope that things don't turn out like Noragami's anime, while noragami's manga was and is still pretty good for the most part, the anime while is only 13 episodes had a filler ending, and it seems i'm the only one who realize's that it wasn't even that great of a filler ending. If you go right now to Noragami's MAL page and scroll down you will see a lot of 9/10 and 8/10 reviews and it honestly doesn't deserve such a high score. My fear is that Donten ni Warau, which will only have 12 episodes, is going to end up like Noragami's anime ending.

So this is Donten ni Warau i.e. the anime I was looking forward the most in the current season... Its good but not as good as I thought it would be. I heard it is going too quick or something? Guess they want to cram all 29 chapters in.

Lol at Chuutarou's pyromaniac activities. Loved the very last scene. Nice ED

Well, I liked it. Seems like this could be a solid series.

Galneryus doing the ending was expected but equally awesome.

Having read the manga some time ago, I was really looking forward to seeing the story animated. Even though this wasn't the best opener of the season, I found this episode as highly enjoyable. The animation of the show, especially of the background, strongly reminds me of Hakkenden.

In terms of characters, it's great to see Tenka, Shirasu and Botan animated. I think Yuichi Nakamura and Takahiro Sakurai are doing a great job with their voice acting. I'm not really liking Chutaro's voice though.

I really like the music played while the brothers were going up the stairs to the shrine at the end. And the ED is absolutely gorgeous - another great song from Galneryus!

So far, this was a good opening episode.

I read this side to side with the manga counterpart, manga chapter 1 first, and I didn't like this adaption, the voices caught me off guard, I am not expecting them to sound like that. They also omitted a few things, too gory? But then the feels won't be there either. The change of mood felt wrong, there wasn't cross dressing/Chuutarou crush/school in the first chapter, it's mostly quite serious.

Now I think I know why this adaption has a very low score, while the manga is ranked so well. Oh well whatever, I will still watch this adaption nonetheless.

I'd been eyeing this up for a while but never got the chance to pick it up till now. I didn't have any expectations, but this definitely wasn't what I'd have imagined it. Tenka's disguise was killing me, it seems like the antics of these brothers will be worth watching. Love the ED, same band that did my favorite HxH ending as well.

Naww, you can totally tell how the 3 brothers are super close and it's really cute! ^^

Good start, I liked the animation and setting, the soundtrack is pretty cool, and there were some nice comedic parts. Doesn't seem to be too dramatic at this point but there are hints at a darker turn later on...Can't wait to see what's next!
